Cass-> Final Shorten Compression & Upload by Karl Schmidtmann.

Inter-track gaps removed, sector boundary errors (SBEs) fixed, flac conversion and .txt file editing by Chris Waters (xtifr AT speakeasy DOT net).

In response to one of the reviews, I thought I should explain the final cleanup a little more. This show, when I got it, had TAO followed by a bad extraction in its ancestry. I removed all the TAO two-second gaps, but there was only so much I could do with the track boundaries, which were messed up beyond repair by the bad extraction. There are no SBEs, but it does sound a little funky between tracks sometimes. Still, that's almost entirely in the inbetween-songs portion. Really, it's not a big deal. It would be nice if a better source for this show turned up, but in the mean time, this one is, IMO, very much good enough.

This show is what the Rads are all about. Down home greasy swampy acoustic jamming.

Subject: splendid show
With the acoustic instruments and the tiny setting of the Maple Leaf, you can really hear the guys working together as a band, one instrument building off the other. They were having fun, taking chances and the music has depth. This is a fine recording.

Subject: Great show...strange edits
Was at the "Spleaf" for this show, as Tulanians called this venue. The boys shredded acoutica
like no one's business as usual. Have had tapes of this show for 20 years, & I notice that curse words and other "between song moments" have been edited out. IE - After the "Chainsaw Medley" when WE the crowd went ape5h1t, Zeke exclaimed "so we f*ckin' played it, so what?..." In this here version: the "f*ckin" is gone, DROPPED, if you will (hence my use of the asterisk)...'sup with that? Anyhoo, 4.5 STAR set by the ever smokin' Radiators. As a
NOLA resident from 82-88, I think that the mid-80s era w/Glenn Sears percolatin' on handperx am
the SHNIZZLE sound for this group. Tho, I still see 'em here in Austin @ Antones when they come and their new digital sound is crisper: they were gritty, dirtier and HARDER in their wily youth. Ease up on the ECHO in the mix, guys.
They ARE too stupid to stop: Long live the RADS!

This is a gem. Nice sounding tape made from a really solid acoustic show.

Subject: great show with some faults
The tracks are not really DAO. There are small gaps round about the end of the tracks. Looks to me like sector boundary errors (which shouldn't be there regarding the text that comes with the files).
But a great show indeed

Subject: Are You Kidding?
After being sort of bored with the Rads for more than a few years now, I caught some lightning in a bottle with them in NO during the first week of Jazzfest '04. Their show at the Hangar / Rendon at the end of April cooked, and it renewed my enthusiasm for fish-head music. So I went searchin' & look what I found - this acoustic show is simply stunning! It is a "must-have" by any definition - there's a review for ya!

Subject: hot acoustic show
This amazing early all-acoustic show proves that the Radiators don't need fancy electronics to rock the house! A playful first set, a beautiful second set, and an absolutely shredding third. Highlights include a completely original arrangement of the classic House of the Rising Sun (the first version I've heard in years that didn't bore me), a stunning instrumental section beginning with Texas Chainsaw Massacre, and a powerful and moving version of the Door's Soul Kitchen to finish the show. This show is a must-have in my opinion.
